Just had this photo rejected as badcategory:

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/rejphoto.main?filename=011204_kmkeoverview2.jpg

I marked AIRPORT OVERVIEW and WINDOW VIEW categories.

The airport is obvious but I wasn't sure about adding the window category so I clicked on the Read Me tag for info, it says this:

"A shot from inside the aircraft cabin through the window. If parts of the aircraft (wing) is included, name the aircraft and airline in the Aircraft and Airline fields. If not, mark the airline field with a minus (-). If the photo shows an airport, also mark the Airport overview category. If some other aircraft is clearly visible but no part of the aircraft that the shot is taken from can be seen, name the other aircraft in the Aircraft and Airline fields and put any other info in the remark field"

So I thought it was appropriate to add this category too, only for it to be rejected.
I have re-uploaded it without the window view marked so its not exactly a big deal, but it would be nice if either:

a) The screeners would apply the info that is given to uploaders in the read me text

or

b) The read me text was amended to follow current screening procedures.

The correct category should just be AIRPORT. The help text isn't too detailed, maybe it could be clarified. But window views can be quite complicated - in the window view manual there are 19 different examples, each with different combinations of categories etc., depending on what's in the photo. I'll email Peter to see if the help file could be a bit more detailed.

AIRLINERS.NET CREW
DATABASE EDITOR

Atco,

As Tom already said, the category should be Airport Overview only, as the airport is the only subject of your photo. Therefore, no details of the aircraft FROM which you made the photo should be listed (unless in the Remarks field), because a viewer who selected an aircraft type or airline or registration in a selection menu, would see a picture of an airfield instead of the expected picture of that aircraft type, airline or registration!  Confused

As Tom said, the editors have a special Window Views Manual which lists all possibilities, but we feel that it is way too complicated for general uploaders use.

But we have taken your point that the current Window View Read Me wasn't too helpful, so we have written an updated version. It will be placed asap on the upload page, but in the meantime you can read the new text here already:

Window View Read Me

A shot from inside the aircraft cabin through the window.

If parts of the aircraft (wing) are included, list the details of the aircraft (type, airline, registration, cn, code) in the appropriate fields.

If the photo shows an airport and also parts of the aircraft, list the aircraft details and additionally mark the Airport Overview category too.

If no parts of the aircraft are included, but the subject of the photo is an airport, do not use Window View, but mark Airport Overview only, mark the aircraft and airline field with a minus (-), and leave the registration, cn and code fields blank. The basic rule in this case is: list the details of the subject of the photo, not FROM where you made the photo (listing aircraft details in this case would result in the viewer seeing a picture of an airport while he clicked on and expected to see a photo of an aircraft type or airline, etc.).

If some other aircraft (e.g. air-to-air) is the main subject of the photo, list the details of that other aircraft, and do NOT select the category Window View.

Thanks Tom and Peter,

The new wording makes everything very clear.

I appreciate the re-wording and the time and effort.

Regards

Garry
